The Zone DietKey Points 5 meals per day (2 of them lighter) Combine food: carbohydrates, proteins and fat (40/30/30) Remove from the diet: Bread, pasta, rice, and potatoes (carbohydrates must come from fruits and vegetables) Drink a lot of water, 8 glasses of water per dayWhat to EatWhat Not to EatDescriptionThe Zone diets eating plan is a combination of a small amount of low-fat protein at everymeal, fats, and carbohydrates in the form of fiber-rich vegetables and fruits. The plan
establishes a ratio for which Sears contends the body is genetically programmed (that 40-30-30 figure).The Zone Diet does not actually prohibit you from any particular food group; howeverfood with high fat and carbohydrates such as grains, starches, and pastas should beavoided. Fruits and vegetables are the preferred source of carbs and monounsaturated fats(such as olive oil, almonds, avocados) are the ideal choice of fats.The Zone Diet works on the theory that excess insulin, a hormone that helps control ourblood sugar levels, makes us fat and keeps us fat. By closely regulating our blood sugarlevels and therefore keeping our levels of insulin in a tight ‘zone’, the body burns fatmore efficiently so that we lose weight. To control blood sugar levels, you need to getthe perfect balance of carbohydrates, proteins and fats in every meal.The Zone diet involves cutting out most carbohydrates such as breakfast cereals, rice,potatoes, pasta, noodles, bread, bagels, croissants, muffins, crisps, pastries, pies,chocolate, sweets, sugar and preserves,On the Zone diet, foods are either “good” or “bad.” Some “good” foods that are allowed(in the proper ratios) include: proteins: lean chicken, turkey, and other poultry, seafood, egg whites, and low- fat/non-fat dairy products. carbohydrates: fruit, non-starchy vegetables, oatmeal, barley, very small amounts of grains fats: small amounts of canola and olive oil.Some “bad” foods that are restricted include: red meat and organ meats such as liver egg yolks fruits and vegetables: carrots, corn, raisins, bananas, papaya, mango, most fruit juices and many fruits bread, cereal, rice, bagels, most baked goods potatoes whole milk dairy products red meat or fatty meats caffeinated coffee alcohol diet soft drinksEnd of this Sample book.Enjoyed the sample?Buy Nowhttp://www.lulu.com/spotlight/SarahSmith
